I think Dungeon Crawler and Metroidvania personally (along with the current genres).

The runes make it a Metroidvania, imo.

The runes allow you to backtrack and open up/explore different levels even though other types of progress are lost after a death. The health flasks carry over as well and the extra health/healing they provide can help you to progress further as well. It's about 80/20 roguelite/metroidvania IMO. I'd like to see metroidvania added to the existing genres as the metroidvania-like combat really sets this game apart from the puny combat found in roguelites like Rogue Legacy, Bard's Gold, and Spelunky.
